The Google Android OS team held a demo event showcasing the latest developments in the Android platform. Last time we saw the Android OS in February at the MWC Barcelona where it was running on top of some rather quirky devices.

Getting closer to launch date the devices and the OS itself has certainly received a facelift. The fluid interface of the OS reminds so much of the Apple iPhone Mac OS and that's a good thing. If there is one thing that the iPhone excels in, it's the fluid almost physical reaction of the interface to a person's touch. So getting the same experience out of a competing OS and having a choice of several devices seem like a really good trend that we enjoy very much.

The device used for the demo purposes has an unknown manufacturer (we bet it's HTC) and runs on the latest Qualcomm MSM7201A platform. This makes for a 528MHz CPU, HSDPA 3.6Mbps, 128MB of RAM and 256MB of flash memory.

The handset uses a capacitive touchscreen display by Synaptics who are rumored to have manufactured the touchscreen display for the Apple iPhone too. This display offers high resolution finger input and multi-touch capabilities.

Although the Android demos use a touchscreen device, you have to remember that the OS will works just as easily on D-pad or trackball-enabled devices without a touchscreen. has some videos showing the interface, menu structure and some features of the upcoming platform.

Hi all,

Well from those video's it seems to be progressing very well and fast, i would imagine the rumors of a launch soon seem very plausible.

It does look like the OS is very fast and dare i say even more advanced than the iPhone, if a touch screen is what you want and like it is looking very good. Especially if you are a G-Mail and many of the other Google services user the integration will obviously work best for you. It is a very impressive looking OS and can't wait to see some devices launched running Android.

Interesting thing about the specs, with the Xperia possibly using the MSM7201A chipset it's not out of the question that users may be able to load android onto the SE by the time it is released.
